George Stephanopoulos's "threshold of crediblity," then and now

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

George Stephanopoulos as a guest on ABC's This Week in 1996:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, I think that someone has to- should have to pass a bare threshold of credibility before they're put on the air to millions of viewers. You know, his story couldn't get past the fact checker at The National Enquirer, so I think before ABC News puts him on, then there should be some questions asked.

George Stephanopoulos as host of ABC's This Week yesterday:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: With that, we bring in ... Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist, also the author of the new book Culture of Corruption.

Yes, this Michelle Malkin. (And this one.)

Unsurprisingly, Malkin made things up.
